Straightening the spindle and a crude assembly

After getting the all thread added to the spindle from the welder we were really concerned about getting it straight. There was a little bit of wobble and when we added the platter, it was all over the place!

Since it was welded, there was not too much we could do but try to flatten it with a vice and hammer. It took us a while, but I do think that we got it pretty straight.

This was our biggest stumbling block and it may be behind us and we may be able to move forward with assembling until into the cabinet. We marked out where it will all fit and have a new list of items to get together for the wiring and mounting etc.
